Save username -> Full Name <> map file
When the user specifies a username -> Full Name <> map file with the -A option, save a copy of that file as $git_dir/svn-authors. When running git-svnimport with an existing GIT directory, use $git_dir/svn-authors (if it exists) unless a file was explicitly specified with -A.
